The aim of our project, as a first step, is to determine and order the components of the acquisition chain. We have several choices in order to achieve that purpose. First, choosing the different elements (like the pulser, the switch, the TGC, etc.) according to the offer’s market. Our visit in Paris brought us a lot of information about the specific components they used to build their prototype. It will surely help us. The second way is to order an echOpen kit which will provide us all the different components. We’ll just have to combine each part with the others. It’s probably an easier way but a less creative solution and we want to build our own echograph with its Belgian specifications.
However, we have to buy a used probe to begin our great work. It’s the most urgent case and it will determine the rest of the development.
